DYKI LYS („Wild Fox“ in Ukrainian) is a Berlin based contemporary jazz ensemble created by Ganna Gryniva. This band bridges several musical worlds from jazz to folk to experimental. Digging into the history and the mystery of the various traditions of making music, DYKI LYS creates a neo-native language that derives its power from its deep roots and the constant desire to explore. Powerful soundscapes, strong grooves and softly floating melodies tell stories of small villages and slow trains; of smiling grandmas with colorful headscarves. Stories of many generations fighting for their independent identity; stories of the bittersweet melancholy that echoes in the vast landscapes of Ukraine.
